XFL Dallas Renegades Preview: Official Depth Chart, Fantasy Implications, Draftkings

The XFL is about to kickoff! Us fantasy football addicts now have a fix for the rest of the season (set your league up now!). We already ranked and graded all eight XFL Teams, but if you’re just looking for one specific roster, we’ve got you covered too. Official XFL Depth Charts were released on Thursday, and many had shocking implications. Below, we look at the Dallas’ depth chart, their Week 1 DraftKings Prices, as well as the coaching staff to give you a complete picture of the Renegades.

Dallas Renegades Preview

Bovada season win total: 6 (-120)

Current Bovada championship odds: +350

Head Coach: Bob Stoops

Offensive Coordinator: Hal Mumme

This is an absolute offensive juggernaut of a coaching staff with former Oklahoma HC Bob Stoops and the Air Raid godfather, Hal Mumme. The combination of Stoops and Mumme will break scoreboards in Dallas and expect them to throw the ball early and often. We all know about Stoops’ pedigree, but Mumme is a odd bird. He’s coached and developed his Air Raid at the high school level, DIII, FCS, FBS, and everywhere in between. In his one FBS head coaching stop, he transformed Tim Couch into the No. 1 overall pick and had the Wildcats on the map in the SEC. Even though he’s a coaching nomad, Mumme will always put points on the scoreboard.

Landry Jones suffered a minor knee injury and is “shooting for” Week 1. Jones reunites with his former college coach, Bob Stoops, and will have instant familiarity in the offense. If there were odds out there, Jones would likely be the front-runner for XFL MVP. If he can’t suit up for Week 1, Philip Nelson will control the offense and serves as a solid backup. If Jones falls due to the injury, he and Nelson could make an interesting QB pairing at a cheap cost.

NFL fantasy owners will recognize the names of Cameron Artis-Payne and former Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar. CAP should be the team’s early-down back who gets the majority of the carries, but Dunbar, who excelled in the NFL as a pass-catching back, is quite the fit in the Air Raid. In an offense that should light up scoreboards, CAP drips in 15-20 TD upside.

The Renegades spent a first rounder on WR Jeff Badet, who was committed to Bob Stoops at Oklahoma before transferring when Stoops stepped down. He’s the perfect WR1 in the Air Raid and should put up gaudy numbers in this offense, especially considering he’s surrounded by all Supplemental Draft talent after Tommylee Lewis left for the NFL. Camp reports labeled him “not just blazing fast, but incredibly agile. His ability to cut tight turns around defenders was on display the last two weeks.” Treat him as a Top-Three XFL Fantasy WR, worthy of WR1 considerations.

Jazz Ferguson is a big-bodied wideout who #DraftTwitter loved coming out of small school Northwestern State. Ferguson drips in fantasy potential, although he may be out for Week 1. With his injury, Ferguson has fallen below Freddie Martino on the depth chart. The Renegades traded for Martino, who possesses some NFL experience and has reportedly made an instant camp impact since arriving. A creature named Flynn Nagel is listed as the third starter. You’ve likely heard of the former Texas QB, Jerrod Heard, who could be a Swiss-Army Knife type.

Though selected after TE-mate Sean Price and below him on the depth chart, Donald Parham is a freak who drips in more upside. The tight end stands at 6-foot-8, 240 lbs with a 7-foot wingspan. Playing FCS Stetson, Parham put together an obscene 180-2591-20 over his career, and reportedly proved “to be a useful target at the back of the endzone and over the top of coverage in 7-on-7 drill.” Expect Parham to be a fantasy favorite in the Air Raid. Meanwhile, Price is a three-down tight end who’s more than capable as a pass-catcher.
